This book chronicles the existence of the city's first great opera house. It is also the story of Albert and Uranus Crosby, who migrated from Cape Cod to Chicago, where they made their fortunes and later sacrificed it all in their efforts to bring a new cultural enlightenment to their adopted city. The advent of Crosby's Opera House and the labors of its founders caused a cultural awakening so profound that it unquestionably set the stage for Chicago's later becoming one of America's great cultural centers.
